Concord Grapes, Nature's Candy


Concord grapes, in season right now, are quite possibly the fruit that tastes most like its artificially-flavored candy counterpart. Raspberry candy rarely tastes like actual raspberries and banana-flavored candy never tastes anything like the real thing, but Concord grapes taste exactly like grape candy. Or should I say grape candy tastes exactly like concord grapes? Their bothersome seeds and thick chewy skin make Concord grapes hard to eat out of hand but they make excellent juice (particularly good in cocktails with a floral gin like Hendrick's ), jam (best in a classic PB&J) and even pie or tart filling (seeds removed).
